Bible & Theology Overview

In the Bible & Theology program at William Jessup University, students develop the skills and disciplines to study the Scriptures in analytical, practical and passionate ways, organizing its contents into meaningful patterns for life and ministry.

Education of the Christian leader is incomplete without the foundational and integrative studies of Scripture that ground and bring coherence to the student’s life and worldview.


  • Students are conversant in the basic elements of Christian theology and effectively present biblical truths in the individual conversations and group settings
  • Graduates can evaluate all of life and thought from a biblical perspective, discerning truth and falsehood, essential and non-essential in matters of Christian faith and practice
  • Students can defend the inspiration and authority of the Bible and evangelical Christian doctrine
  • Students critically examine their own assumptions and those of others that influence the way in which the Bible is interpreted
  • Students exercise critical thinking regarding biblical content and its integration with the entire spectrum of human learning
  • Christ-centered, faith-based courses
  • Personalized advising
  • WASC & ABHE Accredited
